Read this article, with quotes from Diack concerning Bolt:
The article is linked on the LRC frontpage.
Diack's statements confirm everything that I have said, as if it needed any further confirmation given recent doping revelations.
Bolt is golden. He receives special access, and special treatment. He is considered absolutely vital to t&f, and has been personally told by Diack that his role is that of the front-man for all of t&f.
Diack sat him down personally, and had a talk with him, telling him that he has duties to the sport, and "a very special role to play".
The fix has so totally been in, it is incredibly obvious.
Diack absolutely gives it away when he said that "If he tests positive, he tests positive. It would be a disaster for our sport"
Diack is heavily invested in the money that is t&f. Instead of striving for a clean field, honorable competition, and athlete integrity--which would all undeniably benefit from ANY dirty athlete testing positive, including Bolt--he considers that it would be a disaster instead.
It would only be a disaster within the context of the status quo, which status quo was created by the IAAF and its allies, the IOC and WADA.
Because there are competing influences and subterfuge even within those organizations, the important question was how to maintain the status quo while shutting up all those who have a problem with it. How to make sure Bolt is still the best, and make sure that he won't test positive...
The brilliant solution? Let Bolt clean up back to normal territory, and wipe out all of his doped-up competition, so that he's still the fastest. Even guys like Gatlin, Chambers, and Rodgers, who have returned to competition, have served suspensions, but not Bolt, who likely retains some benefit from prior use.
My guess is that, since Gatlin and maybe Dasaolu are pretty close to Bolt, that he will dope very slightly with some German aid, and that it will be overlooked.
By stating that it would be a disaster rather than a triumph if Bolt were to test positive, Diack shows his hand.
If he were to test positive, it would mean that he was doping and that he was a cheater, and cleaning the sport of cheaters is always a triumph according to the moral values that the sport professes to embody.
Thanks, Diack, for confirming so incredibly well, what we already knew.
